Condition 6: A 2m high brick wall must be constructed to enclose the new-build side garden, leaving sloping
grass verges fronting Sedley Close and Hale Road. A low retaining wall must be constructed on
the boundary between the new-build and 2 Hale Road due to level differences (0.5m to 1.0m).
A 2m high fence must be erected on top of the retaining wall between the north-east corner of
number 2 and the north-west corner of the retained rear garden.
